4 from 1 vote

Again one another recipe tried from Everyday Exotic of Roger Mooking with a small alteration in ingredients. Since I don’t have duck meat at that time, I used lamb bones. The soup was delicious, would be great booster in times of sick. A very healthy, simple, easy, delicious and aromatic dish. This would be a great treat at times of winter. Check out my other try from Roger Mooking – Everyday Exotic as follows – Sparkling Limeade, Yogurt with Mint Gremolata, Okra minced meat Stir-Fry.
